New Update failure

New update acted weird from the start. First time starting, I received the note that there was a new update, but did not get the prompt to accept the new update. I exited the game and restarted, this time with the prompt to update, and did so. It seemed to be downloading normally so I stepped away while it downloaded. When I came back it didn't download/install properly with a failure notice of some kind.

 

Now when I start the sim, I get no prompt to install the latest update and am stuck in 1.2.6.17746.

 

How do I update manually, and/or is there a tool within DCS World to force an update. I don't have it on my desk top.

I have come to realize that the update "fails" with an error message ("... was cancelled by the user") if the user is not there to click the "Yes, I really want to let the update do the update" message once the download has completed.

 

You just need to run the Update DCS shortcut (noted above), and be there when the permission dialog comes up.

I had the same error when I tied to auto update. I believe the auto update checks for updates once a day. I think that is why it did not prompt you to update again after if failed and you closed the program.

 

Regardless, the manual update steps mentioned above worked for me as well...
